What are the Open Meeting Laws?
The Open Meeting Laws are set of laws created for the people not the government. They were created based on the constitution. The principles of democracy. The Right to Know, Transparency, The Right to Speak openly at meetings. Freedom of the press.
Many of these principles have been suppressed by small government leaders and the Federal and state Government have responded by creating these laws to restore our democratic principles which they feel has eroded by the actions of small government leaders in particular select boards and committees. This section of our website devoted to learning what the laws are and how they promote a better government for towns and cities.
On this page are several excellent references to the Open Meeting Laws. Some of them are easier to understand and more condensed and some are the actual statues which are very specific.
